Teltech Communications Cofounder Kelley Bontempo Joins Zurich Technology Solutions

Industry’s Heaviest Hitters Are Joining Zurich Technology Solutions, the Telecom and IT Network Supersource

Irvine, California – March 26, 2018

Zurich Technology Solutions, Inc. announces the addition of Kelley Bontempo as Vice President of Sales to its rapidly growing operation. Kelley cofounded Teltech Communications in 1999 where she served as the President & Chief Operations Officer. She helped grow Teltech to over $35M in annual sales before taking an exit in 2014. Kelley and the Zurich team will debut the company’s offerings at the CCA Mobile Carrier’s Conference this week in Las Vegas at Booth #207.

Zurich’s collective brings effective, creative solutions to the most challenging and complex problems facing network providers today such as the management and phase out of legacy technologies, migration to 5G networks, and transition from traditional circuit switching to all IP networks. The company is now serving clients with over $20M in searchable inventory on the Zurich Technology Solutions Website

CEO Craig Brechner, said, “The addition of Kelley Bontempo is a powerful endorsement of Zurich’s incredible potential. Kelley is a recognized powerhouse in our industry.  She has a rock solid ethic, terrific gut instinct and a top notch reputation with clients.  She built Teltech from the ground up in a way very similar to how I built Phoenix before taking an exit and Gil Boas has built Amerinode. We are builders. Zurich is taking flight with a dream team of proven industry leaders and I could not be more enthusiastic for what we are creating for our clients.”

Kelley said, “Joining Zurich is a win-win, I get to do what I do best with people that I trust and respect. ZTS is comprised of forward thinking, innovative leaders that look outside of the box for solutions. In this ever-changing industry, you have to adapt to the customer’s challenges and requirements. The founders of Zurich have created and run some of the industry’s most trusted, reliable companies. This is a collective I wanted to join and help build.”

Today’s networks are increasingly complex and are enduring an unprecedented rate of change in their underlying technology. We know intimately from our long-standing collaboration with many clients that the current workforce is being technically challenged and resource constrained. Zurich’s experience uniquely qualifies the company to enter as a much needed and trusted partner to address the demand for expert resources in the IP network planning and execution process.”

Ashish Rampal Cofounder and COO added “As a former Nortel Networks executive and leader of their Remanufacturing business, I see the necessity for a player as powerful as Zurich in the market. There is a definite need for OEMs and Carriers to work with a proven team to simplify their reverse logistics and end of life portfolio of goods and services.”

The company’s core service and equipment offerings include:
